Winslow: Crown Smooth Calabash (300)
Product Number: 002-036-0703
Poul Winslow's popularity has shot up recently, and I believe it has something to do with shapes like these. I won't try and place it in a school, because sometimes Winslow's hand and style become so prevalent in a shape, that to quote Danish or classical influence might rob him of the originality put forth. In saying that, its just a lovely shape, well-executed and thoroughly thought through - brought to fruition so naturally, that it appears effortless. When purchased (not saying you will, but if you do), sit it on your writing desk or some other flat surface (an it will sit too, sturdily), and admire the profile it creates: the way the piece seems too lift the stem gracefully, following the shank down into a gentle taper. A rather calculated move, the widening stylistically buffers the generous bloom of the Calabash-esque bowl. With pitch perfect sophistication, Winslow stained the stummel in a coral orange - teetering somewhere between the earthy classical and the vibrantly modern - showing off the flame grain encircling the bowl and the birdseye dappling the rim.
